that the.se statements aie only approxi

rather larger proportion of the latter,
and about two thirds less of the formei.
The oiith piesents a bio.id fie'd of
homicide, neatly twice :is large ; is that
of all the rest of the country, with a
very narrow strip of self-destruction.
In New Yoik and New .lersev suicide
is as ;is about three to one of murder:
in Pennsylvania about two to one; in
Delaware and Mat viand just theieverse
of these, murder exceeding suicide by
one-thiid and one-half. Homicide in
the District of Columbia is appalling,
compaied with its population; there
appear to be little deposition to J'tlo
de.se. In Virginia the suicide is about
a quarter of the homicide; m West
Virginia the two crimes aie nearly
equal, suicide preponderating slightly.
In the Carolina murder is to suicide
as thiee to out ; in I'lomia tl; niriihci

homicide over suicide remains as thiee
to one. In Texas the aiea of inurdei is
something awful, unless one can p'tch
one's mood to the key of De Qiniiccy's
famous essay; il is ten times as gieat
as suicide. In Nevada the proportion
of the latter is about; one-lift h of the
former. In California there is a vast
amount of both, suicide preponderating:
can it be because of the homesick Chi

"We went on oerthe hill to IJethanv:
we hadciimbed upb the path on which
David lied front Absalom, and we were
to return by the road of the Triumphal

a magnificent panorama: a blue piece

the green ribbon of the river winding
through it, and the long, even range of
the Moab hills, blue in the distance.
The prospect was almost wiss in its
character, but it is a mass of bale hills
with scarcely a ttce except in the im
mediate foreground, and so naked and
desolate as to make the heat t ache; it
would be entiiely desolate but for the

that bathes all the great sweep of peaks
and plains in color.

rocks and fragmente of walls; upon
older foundations loose walls are laid,
rudely and recently patched up with
cut stones in fragments, and pieces of
Itoinun columns. The house of Simon
the leper, overlooking the whole, is a
mere heap of ruins. It does not mat
ter, however, that all these dwellings
are modern ; this is IJethanv, and when
we get away from its present wretch

pretensions of Servia Tchernayeff

non-observance by the Turks of the sus
pension of hostilities, he will also dis
regard it if an opportunity arises for
obtaining an advantage. The Minister
of War has left Relgrade in great haste
to prevent this threatened rupture, as
well as to meet a deputation on its way
to tender Prince Milan the crown.
